If everyone stays healthy, manager John Farrell is going to have a tough decision to make.
"With Pomeranz and Wright both All-Stars in their respective leagues last year, they're very capable," Farrell said. "So it's not a shortness of talent by any means. Each have had some physical things they've worked through, but that would be the ideal situation, having six guys capable and ready to go."
Though Pomeranz is on a conservative program this spring, he is encouraged by the way his elbow feels. A better test will come on Monday, when he throws his first side session of the spring.
"Really confident. I feel really good," Pomeranz said. "They got me on a throwing program here, just have me mapped out to go about as slow as I can, even though I can probably push myself a little harder. There's really no point. I also threw a lot more innings than I've ever thrown in my life last year."
